romney face off for the first time , the number one issue on most people's minds , the economy. look at the new numbers from our cnn orc poll. voters are asked which candidate would handle the economy, obama and romney are tied. romney appears to have an edge on the top two economic issueses unemployment, and the budget deficit. for obama he holds the advantage on domestic issues, education, medicare, taxes, immigration and health care. these noneconomic issues are the first topics up for debate wednesday night. voters will be judging the candidates personal qualities. obama's favoritability rating
has obama leading romney 49-46. the economy is issue number one and whose plans are better for the middle class. to answer that we are holding our own debate right here on the kudlow report. we are joined by new jersey democratic congressman and jim gillmore to make the case for governor romney. there will be time to talk among your selves at my disgression. the first question is going to congressman big paskrel. 1.3% gdp 25 million people out of the workforce. mr. president, what is your solution to the prosperity and the recovery that continues to elude us? >> over the past 30 months we have had an increase in private sector jobs. but that is the direction we are going in. if you remember what happened before that, when the president raised his hand in january of 2009, we were losing 700 no,000 jobs a month. but the fact of the matter is we are going in the right direction now and we should keep doing that. the president supports the position on the creation of jobs and the government can't do everything but it has a responsibility. we have lost public sector jobs and we
. it will focus on domestic policy, things like healthcare and the economy. that's where mitt romney sees his opening. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of to us describe the path way forward. >> reporter: the public is basically split on who they think can do a better job, president obama with a one-point edge at the moment. a praise which hasn't had huge swings, everything can change in one night but both sides had tried to lower expectations. >> governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay. >> about 6,000 to 8,000 people can fit in this arena behind me. you can expect a packed house. we are expecting tens of millions to watch from their homes, so the pressure is definitely on. >>> speaking of voters, in pennsylvania they're not going to be required to show a photo i.d. at the polls. a judge is temporarily blocking it. a judge said he wasn't convinced that every voter would be able to get a valid i.d. the requirement is supported by republicans who said they're fighting voter fraud. democrats say it's a move to help republican candidates. that ruling is expected to be appeale
about the issues they care about, namely the economy. governor romney has an ability, a chance to talk to these voters that don't feel like the last four years have -- that american economy has lived up to its potential. they don't feel like job growth is where it needs to be, like take home pay is where it needs to be. the chance to talk to those voters is an incredible opportunity and one that the governor hopes to seize tonight. >> of course the romney forces, the super pacs and your campaign, have also spent millions of dollars, the only question is which side is getting through to more people. this is what robert gibbs, one of your counter partss, a big supporter and surrogate and former press secretary for the president had to say earlier on the program. >> if you want to be straight with the american people and the american people want you to be straight with them, you owe it to the american people to explain not through, you know, mumbo jumbo or fuzzy math or voodo economics how do you get $5 trillion and not end up raising taxes on the middle class to pay for a tax cut for peo
are plans to continue to move this economy forward. look, i also hope that mitt romney will take some of the time paul ryan didn't want to take in his interview this weekend and try to explain the arithmetic behind their budget. paul ryan said it would take too long to explain their budget plan. the problem isn't the time and explanation. it's the math that's involved to make the statements that mitt romney and paul ryan have said line up to being anything close to the truth. and i think that governor romney will likely whether he likes it or not have an opportunity to try to explain how you pay for a $5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy, and not have it end up as every study has shown raising taxes on middle-class families. >> they've come up wait new study today where they say i think with what you could call dynamic scoring, that tax reform will produce economic growth if you want to prebutt that. >> well, you know, andrea, you and i both have been in washington a long time. and when the math doesn't add up, somebody comes up with these unique economic theories that somehow despite
the debate is going to be on right? on the economy. now the romney memo says that mitt romney will champion manufacturing jobs and bring them back to our shores and it also says that america has lost 582,000 manufacturing jobs under the president's watch. now mitt romney clearly plans to go after the president on the jobs record, but here is the truth. president obama has the longest stretch of manufacturing job gains -- get this wait for it -- in almost two decades. since 2000 when president bush came into office, the manufacturing sector went into a steep slide, but since 2010, that slide has turned around. the president has record on manufacturing jobs since president clinton. and he noted as much during his dnc speech. >> and after a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years. >> jennifer: now in polititfacts rated that statement by president clinton as true. mitt romney's own plan would cost 800,000 u.s. jobs according to the study for american progress. the corporate tax cuts would cost the u.s
. >> reporter: the romney senior strategist said the poor economy is the focus you go but downplay a "new york times" report that romney used offshore accounts to avoid taxes and inquire -- increase his income. he said that romney's financial decisions are made by a blind trust. >> what is most important to people is they try to relate their economic standing with the candidates and they ask themselves a question what, are the plans we have proposed before the public. >> despited let the in the polls, the president will appear careful not to be confident over the debate. >> there is going to be no dancing. >> reporter: this obama campaign pyrotechnic said the president will -- press secretary said the president will defend his record on the economy and try to talk directly to voters who haven't decided if they will vote for him. >> and won't to reach the undecided voters towing in about what the president's plans are for the middle class. >> reporter: speculation ends wednesday and the debate begins when all of the -- what all of the candidates will talk about comes to an end. >> officials had

romney's plan to the economy. >> he would double down on the same trickle-down policies that led to the crisis in the first place. ashley: we have the added and the facts the campaign conveniently left out. the nfl gets political, pro football owners and players making their voices heard on the campaign trail fulfilling from their bank account. joining us to talk politics and football in just moments. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves to shop online with her debit card, and so does bill, an identity thief who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accounts and stole her hard-earned money. now meet jack. after 40 years, he finally saved enough to enjoy retirement. angie, the waitress at jack's favorite diner, is also enjoying his retirement. with just a little information, she's opened up a credit line, draining the equity in jack's home. unfounately, millions of americans just like you learn all it may take is a little misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft, and no one helps stop it better than lifelock. see, ordinary credit monitoring servi
romney trying to undermine his credentials on the economy. the romney campaign for financial reasons and also following their own strategy didn't respond as fully. didn't spend as much money on ads as the obama group did. this is a good bet that the obama campaign is thinking they have won. >> woodruff: maybe it's paying off. >> no question about it that the romney folks held back figuring that they could move numbers late. turned out the president's campaign moved the numbers early. >> woodruff: let's talk about these two debates, stu. what does each campaign think it needs to on wednesday night? let's start with romney. >> normally when you have these presidential debates the challenger needs to look presidential. i don't think the romney folks think that's a problem. he looks like a president. he has experience and maturity. but clearly they need to change the dynamic of the race. all the narrative is bad for the challenger. the obama campaign has been really successful in making the campaign about mitt romney personally, his values, who he stands for. i think the romney folks ha
romney offers a set of policy proposals which will grow the economy, of the port of poverty, all of the middle-class and provide jobs for the american people. >> republican candidate mitt romney want lower taxes and less government intervention. that's something this family agrees with, particularly when it comes to health care reform very >> health care is not our right in the sense we don't authorize the government to take for other people to provide the american people with health care. healthcare is a privilege. >> but this obama supporters sees a different america. he says the government is not giving people the help they need. >> health care is not a privilege. health-care is right. playing golf is a privilege. you don't have to play golf. >> he can afford to buy private insurance for themselves and his family, but as a presbyterian minister, he often crop -- often comes across people his lights have been turned upside down by the economic crisis. that's why a lot with most of the members of this parish council, he was to see president obama reelected. he wants to see more
been talking about this on the stump speech. and i mean, tell me why for mitt romney the economy is not resonating with him more. when you look at the polls and our polling in particular, the president and mitt romney are basically neck and neck on the issue of the economy. a little bit of an edge for your candidate on the issue of unemployment. but why, with all of those statistics that you just rattled off, why isn't your guy, the business guy, doing better on that? >> it is somewhat perplexing given how poorly the president has managed the economy. there's been a lot of promises, and platitudes. but not a lot of results. that's mitt romney's shtick. he's about getting results, as governor of massachusetts and turning around the olympics. i think there's been a couple things. one the democrats got a little bump out of the convention. two, i think the president has done a good job on tv with some of his face to the camera commercials, making his promises. even though they're some of the same ones he made before, he sounds good. >> it's resonating -- >> now they're actually getti
but also talking more negatively about mitt romney in terms of the economy. when he is talking about character, he's got some very negative on mitt romney as opposed to speaking up his own character. i will show you the equivalent of that in mitt romney. mitt romney is spending more time talking about his character. he is splitting his time between promoting his character and making negative statements about president obama's character. the interesting thing about this chart is that not only is the economy, is he talking less about the economy than what pulled -- than what people believe he is doing what he is also focusing more negatively on obama when speaking then he's been positive about putting forth a plan of his own. i think he listened to the right wing pundits to much in terms of saying this economy will be about why obama as fat as opposed to what i have to offer the country. but that is just me -- why obama is bad as opposed to what i have to offer the country. but that is just me. this is when people are talking about obama, they are talking mostly about the campaign in t
and they got more information. that's a determination that they made. >> eliot: some romney advisers think this is an area of weakness of obama upon which they should pounce. others say they should stay with the economy. joining me now former assistant to president clinton for national security affairs. thank you for joining us. >> a pleasure, eliot. >> eliot: let's start with the important question. what do we know about al-qaeda's attacks in the consulate in ben gassy. >> this was a well planned attack. somebody had been casing the consulate in benghazi for some time. whether they acted on the spur of the moment or if they had direction in outside of libya remains to be scene. >> eliot: the difficulty given the uncertainty and it's impossible to get your arms around all the facts very quickly. but the difficulty then is how do we then move in our evolving relationship with the new libyan government to control al-qaeda's presence and respect their sovereignty. where do we go in this evolving arab spring, in libya in particular. >> a lot of this takes time. building up a strong system of g
of themselves. >> you look at this analytical, only three or four breaks, romney would be ahead right now, breaks going to obama's side. the romney performance overseas when he blew that thing with cameron. the masterful performance by bill clinton where he reset the clock on the economy. of course, this 47%. these breaks have been going toward obama, haven't they? i mean, i can't think the last time romney got a break. >> reporter: no, really not since -- you have to go back, i would say, to may or june at the earliest to come up with a time where you feel like romney was controlling the narrative, controlling the tempo of this campaign. and then, you're right, didn't catch a break. it starts with the health care ruling at the end of june that somehow goes obama's way and then it marched through july, he takes a week off. a lot of people question that. then he ends up doing this overseas trip, as you point out. they blew their convention. blew an opportunity there. one thing about romney is he's had more experience going into a big debate behind than any other candidate at this point in
ask you? >> sure. i am definitely going to vote for romney. the change will be good. >> economy at the top of my list. if that is strong, even is strong. >> helen rice, owns an artisan market in littleton. she is anxious to see how president obama talks about the country's economic future over the next four years. >> i feel as a business owner the economy is still kind of shaky. it wouldn't take a lot to make that real unstable. but i feel like we made progress in the last four years. >> what factors in for her? >> i care about the middle class. people trying to make a living at their own business. so, i don't want to see the rich getting richer. i'm not that kind of businesswoman. >> you're a mom of three? >> three teenagers. >> business person? >> business person. >> debbie brown doesn't sugar coat it. she wants more women involved. that's why she is involved. as director of the colorado women's alliance. group that defines itself as researching and vo kateing on issues that women care about most. >> every woman's issue isn't birth control issue. a lot of us to who feel like p
taxpayers. >> we don't want a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we added 50 million people to food stamp rolls in the last four years because there is no opportunity, no economic growth. >> in the debate, romney is sure to be asked what is now shorthanded as his 47% remarks. he previewed his explanation to denver fox affiliate. >> i'm a president for 100% of the american people. that is the real percent people care about. not 99% versus 1%. not 47%. i'm president for 100% of the people and demonstrated that throughout my life. >> within hours of the vice president remark in the state of the middle class in four years, ryan took him to task. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, "buried." we agree. they're being buried by regulations, buried by taxes. buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration economic failures. >> romney rallied a crowd of 5,000 upon alive denver last knight and showed a bit of his planned debate criticism of the president's record. >> we know where the president's pathway leads b
up, you would think that romney's a slight favorite right now. we have seen obama recently in a higher position than he's been in all year, maybe higher than you would expect based on where the economy is. so i do think romney should have a tail wind at the same time the stuff we're mentioning where he also has tried to avoid articulating where his positions are on a lot of issues, a lot that is common sense but if you take positions further away from the center that damages you and he's not done a lot of running to the center at all in this campaign. that's unusual and he'll be proebds for more detail during the debate. >> the american public or people are crying out for the etch a sketch moment. joy, in terms of managing expectations, the guy that has managed them in his own fashion is chris christie. i want to play a little chris christie sound doubling down on the fact that this is a big deal tomorrow night for mitt romney. >> this whole race will be turned upside down thursday morning. >> what are you doing, christie? for god sake's if romney fails to meet those heavy
is stacked to play in romney's favor. the things romney is accusing obama of owe mismanaging the economy, fast and furious, this banghazi stuff -, that can't be rebutted. what obama is accusing romney of, being a tax cheat, swiss bank accounts, all that kind of stuff, can be rebutted. >> sean: what obama will say -- thus this will be mostly on the economy. obama will say, it's getting better. that was the recovery summer of 2010. >> but romney -- there were a whole lot of people right now who want to vote for romney. want to vote against obama. but they don't want to vote for romney because of all the negatives obama's piled on them which has not been answered. they're sitting on one side waiting for permission to jump over and vote for romney. in the debate, that he's not a monster, that he's a man of integrity and defending himself on this stuff, can absolutely encourage them to jump over and make it possible for them to do that. >> sean: what a joke all weekend, watching the obama people trying to lower expectations. >> yeah, right. >> sean: 2-1. >> let's par remember that most debate
's all about the economy and jobs, jobs, jobs. mitt romney with a six-point advantage there. and two of those probably coming up on wednesday night. what do you think? >> the jobs and economy are so segregated in people's minds anyway. wow, fascinating. what about overall, i like the guy, i don't like the guy? >> it's a huge factor. the president used to have a big advantage when it comes to likability, favorable ratings. take a look at our numbers from yesterday. 52% had a favorable rating of the president, mitt romney's not that far off at 49%. what about the wing man, joe biden 47%, paul ryan 46%. all kind of in the same range. >> how often do we poll about the wing man? i rarely see the actual numbers separated for the vice presidential candidate. >> they face off next week. more numbers on them. >> and just lastly, while we look at these polls and hear a lot of people arguing about polls and they're skewed and they follow a narrative and the questions follow a narrative and that may or may not be true. historically, how accurate have polls been toward the election sf. >> i like
in which the president has erased mitt romney's edge on the economy. and i think that's because the american people have started to focus on his policies. the fact he would provide a $5 trillion tax cut to the wealthiest americans, that he'd repeal wall street reform and the affordable care act and replace it with nothing. they're starting to focus on his policies and the choice is starting to crystallize as election day approaches. >> our poll only had the president by one point, so you are correct, although that is margin of error. tara, is this good news from north carolina enough for you or are you still very worried that there are several key states, which you must win. or you're not running that close according to the latest polls? >> first off, there was a nice pivot by ben, but president obama won north carolina last time around and i think it should give them pause, but when you look at these polls and i've said this before, we expect this to be very tight. down to election day. in these battleground states across the country, so i think that you know, what you're sayin
they should have been doing all along is running against president obama's record on the economy. that's what they should have down. the latest "washington post" poll shows for the first time, mitt romney is slightly better regarded on the question of who will do better leading the economy over the next four years than the president? that's through no good offices of mitt romney on his own. that's in spite of what mitt romney has done. >> howard, we have heard so much about the disgruntled folks within the romney/ryan camp. the way it's unfolding in the polls is not good. there's a report that says that romney is beginning to lose donors who were shifting their money to house and senate races. what's going on here? is this starting to take its toll on the campaign? >> yes. in many ways, what mitt romney's challenge is on wednesday night is to stop the bleeding within his own party and within his own camp. absolutely. behind the scenes, republicans are very worried. some are saying so publically. if mitt romney doesn't reassure them within the first half hour of the debate, they are goners. no
voters and do that after the debate. if romney turns in a strong debate, you hope you have an economy ad that helps governor romney build on any momentum out of the debate. number three, both campaigns and friends, democratic super pakz and republican super pacs have to make tough decisions over the next three weeks, five weeks left in the campaign, but over the next three to four weeks you have to make decisions not only where to spend money and spend more money, but where to take resources out. that's the toughest decision to campaign. not necessarily where to spend, it is where not to spend. when you have a big buy like this, then you poll, you see if you're moving the numbers. and in some of states you'll keep the ads, some states, watch in a week, ask have they pulled out? that will tell you something. >> crunch time indeed, john king, thank you for us in denver. no pressure as millions, millions will be watching tomorrow night's first presidential debate. all comes down to the two men on stage, the public will perceive one of them is the winner as we have seen in history, one line,
it. >> ann romney: stop it. >> stephanie: economies have stepped forward to soothe us all, the idea that we would run out of pork is really overblown. [ applause ] >> stephanie: so everybody can go back to what you were doing. >> ann romney: stop it. >> stephanie: bacon mania going on in the country. >> there was. >> stephanie: linda in california you are on the "stephanie miller show." >> caller: good morning. i have three quickies and one relevant. will you let me do it? >> stephanie: sure. >> caller: before anybody votes for lord mitt romney they might want to check out the september 22nd airing of how the state got their shapes. it's about utah and mormons. >> i have seen that special. it's really cool. >> caller: it is. and people should check that out before they vote for mitt. the second thing is thanks to the women who cleaned their house, because i was sitting around like a big slug enjoying your show, but now i have gotten cleaning. and third thing is scott brown would not comment on the red sox question, and elizabeth warren is not afraid to answer any ques
is just outside the margin of error. those polled rank the economy as the most important issue. on that, the two candidates are in a tie. governor romney leads when it comes to the handling of the budget deficit. however, the president is ahead on every other issue including health care and national security. we have team fox coverage. carl cameron has the latest from the romney campaign. first, we go to ed henry in las vegas. what do we know about the president's debate prep? >>reporter: they have tried to keep that quiet. we have spotted senator john kerry who is playing mitt romney in the mock debate sessions for the president in the las vegas area. he has been spotted in the lobby of the hotel, with reading glasses and a pile of papers, going through this like it is a final exam and researching every last bit. the president, when he delivered pizza to campaign volunteers to show he has a calm, cool image headed into the debate, he made clear he also things this is like a final exam. he has been holed up, long hours, inside, dealing with a big workload. >> it is all very nice. althou
is the question i would like, mitt romney, how would you -- if bill clinton couldn't have turned this economy around in four years, even he couldn't turn it around in four years what, could you have done to turn it around in four years? see if he comes back with specifics or if he comes back with rhetoric. can mitt romney comment on why he has offshore accounts? can mitt romney thoroughly and adequately explain the 47% comment which has been used for the other side in ads and can he expand on his math on the economy? if he can do that in a way in which we can all understand without generality, i think he could have momentum. if not, then president obama -- >> steve: they've been working on the lines, first in vermont and now out in colorado as well. it's interesting, though, to hear how people on the left and the white house have been down playing the president's performance. >> brian: you think so? >> steve: just a little bit. remember over the last four, five years, we've been told barak obama brack, one of the whyest political speakers of all time, now we're expected to believe he's going
